Aloo Bread Tikki


Oops I deep fried again! 😁😮 I have a very good explanation to it. Believe me!


The weather outside is wet, the temperatures are cooling down, the day light saving kicked in today so gained an hour, feeling blah, feeling cold and crappy…. Are these enough reasons to indulge? Eh! Who am I kidding? I wanted hot, comforting and indulging bite to calm myself down. Hence the tikkis swam through the oil, went inside my mouth, teeth and tongue dwelled on these and heart said, ahhhhhh…heaven!!

It makes the perfect foot ball game night snack, a party finger food, a kitty party indulgence and stuff inside a bun and serves as a great slider.


This is a quick and super easy recipe. Here is how to do it!

Kitchen Equipments Required

a big bowl for mixing, grater, a heavy bottom wok or kadhai to fry, a slotted spoon, a plate with paper napkins to rest the tikkis.


Potatoes / Aloo – 4 medium, boiled, peeled and grated

Bread slices, (stale preferred) – 2, crushed. I used multi grain. You may use any kind available.

Ginger – 1 tsp, grated

Oil & Spices

Coriander powder – 1 tbsp

Red chili powder – 1/2 tsp

Garam Masala – 1/2 tsp

Cumin / Jeera powder – 1/2 tsp

Cloves Powder – 1/4 tsp, optional

Dry Mango powder / Khatai/ Amchur – 1/2 tsp. You may use 1 tsp lemon juice instead.

Salt to taste

Oil to deep  fry


  1. Preparing for the Tikkis – Take the bowl. Grate potatoes and ginger in it. Add crushed bread slices. Add all the spices as mentioned above. Mash with hands and bring together in a crumbly dough.
  2. Shaping the Tikkis – Pinch about 3 tbsp portion from the potato mixture. Press it hard between hands and shape into even discs of about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thickness.   Make sure that there are no cracks on the surface. Keep aside and finish the mixture likewise.
  3. Deep Frying the Tikkis – Heat the oil in the wok or kadhai. Slip 2-3 Tikkis at a time in the hot oil, from the side carefully. Do not over crowd the wok. The oil should be hot. The Tikkis would surface to the top. Fry them till the beautiful golden color is achieved on the bottom of the Tikki. Once they are golden and crisp at the bottom, flip them gently with slotted spoon and let cook till they are golden on the other side too.
  4. Serving Suggestion – Serve them hot with Green Cilantro Chutney and Ketchup. Even Tamarind and Dates Chutney will go very well with it.

Enjoy these gorgeous golden, vegetarian and vegan, Tikkis from my Indian American Kitchen to yours :).

  1. I love how you mixed in the breadcrumbs along with the aloo. I always create extra work for myself, dipping it in egg, then breadcrumbs and so on. I must try your method. We have rains forecast for the rest of the week, so this would be perfect 🙂

  2. Sounds like a perfectly plausible excuse to have some good old deep fried comfort food to me. I’m a fan!! They look and sound so good, love the cutlets. I could eat more than a few of those today.

  3. You have my permission to have indulged, I think one needs to do that every so often and since it’s such a yucky day where you are, you owed it to yourself :). I’ve never heard of these, but love the ingredients.
